Program overview

The trend

Working with clients around the world, we see organizations facing three scenarios:

  1. Leaders who are not all competent listeners

  2. Leaders who can listen, but are too busy to take the time to listen

  3. Leaders who need training on how to be a more effective listener

The solution is to provide leaders with the training, tools and techniques to help them become better listeners.      

Program flow

In this program leaders will learn how to listen more effectively, enhance communication and get more done. They will also learn the reasons why people don’t listen effectively as well as the difference between hearing and listening.
